I was surprised to see Angelanic out in 2 days after double fusion! My doctor was quite clear that I should expect to be in 5-6 days. I am not sure whether this is because my surgery entails a bit more (vertebrectomy + realignment+360) and recovery will be harder, or because of different policies? Or both?
I was also told I would not be able to leave until I was cleared for personal care by PT, so walking stairs, getting in and out of a car, etc. I thought this sounded like a great service, do they offer this at all hospitals?
I know I will be itching to get out as soon as they are no longer giving me IV pain meds!
